17th Century Padlock

Blacksmith made and dated 20-11-1691.
The key hole is hidden under the middle flap which is released by a secret catch in the right hand side wall.
The point projecting from the bow of the key is pushed in to a hole in the wall which in turn pushes an internal spring releasing the flap.
The hasp can then be removed bringing the 2 outer dummy flaps with it.
